CNCH Gallery Show Entry Details

Posted By DLaVallee on February 28, 2012

Confused about which gallery is the most appropriate placement for your exhibit item?

Unclear about how which galleries you can exhibit in, or the total number of items you can exhibit and have judged? You must be a member of a CNCH guild or a paid registrant at the 2012 conference to enter items in any of the galleries.

Don’t know which gallery entry form to use?

You are not alone!!!   Hopefully, the questions and answers below will clear up any confusion.  If they do not, please send your emailed question to

Which gallery is most appropriate for my art piece?

There are five different galleries:

  1. Baskets, Vessels, and Sculptures gallery.
  2. Tradition & Innovation gallery for home décor items (e.g. placemats, wall hangings) & fashion items that are not being shown in the Fashion Show (e.g neckware, garments, accessories).
  3. Fashion Show gallery where items in the Fashion Show will be exhibited after the Friday night show.
  4. Yardage gallery for cloth not yet fashioned into garments or home décor items.
  5. Teachers  gallery.

Which gallery entry form do I use?


There are three entry forms:

  1. The Tradition/Innovation: Galleries Entry Form is used not only for the Tradition & Innovation gallery (see #2 above for gallery items), but also for  the Basket, Vessel &

Sculpture gallery (#1 above).

  1. The Tradition/Innovation Fashion Show Entry Form (#3 above) is only for items exhibited in the Friday night fashion show.  If an item is NOT exhibited in the show, the general Galleries Entry Form should be used instead.
  2. The Tradition/Innovation: Yardage Gallery Entry Form is used for all yardage.

How many items can I enter?

You can enter a maximum of three items on each entry form for a possible grand total of nine items if you used all three entry forms.  In-other-words, the same person could enter 3 Fashion Show items, and still submit 3 additional non Fashion Show pieces (e.g.  woven jewelry, a scarf, a table cover), and also submit 3 woven pieces of yardage.
